in that turnout parity, if you will, a lower african-american turnout in states like ohio, virginia, and the state of north carolina could, in fact, affect the outcome of the election in a dramatic way because the margins were indeed so close. african-american voters are very important part of the voting block in place like northeastern ohio, in places like throughout the state of virginia and certainly in north carolina. so many people have a focus on those states and we released that report because sometimes we think there's a certain i think, narrow perception of who swing voters are. elections are not only who people will vote for but who will come out to vote. and that's why so much of our effort is about ensuring high voter turnout all across the board. >> jennifer: that is an interesting and important way of redefining what a swing voter is or what the type of voter is who could swing the election is. the urban league actually initiated an occupy the vote campaign earlier this year. and is that what you hope to acco

,000 new jobs for colorado. create over 340,000 new jobs for virginia. >> jennifer: so all of these very specific numbers, how can he estimate the jobs numbers without a plan? >> i have no idea how he estimated those numbers, but i do know he doesn't have a credible plan. the one plan he has basically put out there in some detail is his budget plan, and if you look at that you can see he created a huge hole in the deficit, he has to slash other government programs. he has to slash the kind of employment we're talking about today by 40%, put a tax on the middle class estimated about $2,000 a year in order to pay for tax cuts at the top. the whole program that he has put out there with not a lot of details, however, enough detail to say those numbers are not based on a credible plan. >> jennifer: and he is running these ads like crazy. and larry i think there's an ad in the making from something that president clinton said. take a listen. >> since 1961 for 52 years now, the republicans have held the white house 28 years, the democrats 24. in those 52 years, our pri
have any poll numbers in it that doesn't talk about florida, that doesn't talk about virginia, that doesn't talk about ohio, i think it's proof of this campaign is in trouble also that mention of the word significantly that things haven't changed significantly. i think that word in itself suggests that things have sort of changed in the is sense that they are gelled in a lot of these variables in this campaign are locked in place and locked in place against mitt romney. >> well, patricia, clearly when you get those kind of polls and they don't have florida and other things in it nia-malika is raising, fact checking doesn't matter but why do states matter? when you look at the cnn poll, when they raise a question, who do you think will win, 59% think president obama will win and 37% says romney when you raise a question of who connects better to middle class and women, more in touch with problems faces the middle class, 57 to 37. these are significant gaps in these areas. if you add this to that bounce, does this look real to you? >> well, you know what, that cnn poll is so imp

and virginia. that's where they are behind. that's arguably much more important than this national number. >> you mentioned the economy. we had another dismal jobs report, but i guess the question is that kind of baked into the poll numbers? do voters already know that they are in a terrible economy and it's already been factored in? >> they do. i think the question, savannah, is do voters, that narrow slice that will decide the election, blame the president for where they are? if they do, it's advantage romney. if they accept his argument from the convention and former president clinton that nobody could have fixed this in four years, that that's part of the context, that he needs more time and that the economy is going in the right direction, look at how the stock market is performing, then it's advantage for the president, and that's the case he's making. >> you covered a lot of ground in your interview with mr. romney on "meet the press." some people viewed it in total as a signal that romney was moving towards the center, sounding a more general election tone. is that how you read it
convention blips. >>> mitt romney handed out dogs to voters in virginia estate or his deadlock with president obama. earlier he used the backdrop at a military aviation museum in virginia beach to focus on the lead defense cuts. greta the kind of numbers of jobs lost in virginia from these cuts is between 102 and a thousand i will not cut our military i will maintain a military commitment. >>> also took aim at friday's drop report say that the president doesn't have it takes to turn the economy around. >>> he doesn't have a plan or any ideas but we have to make sure he doesn't have any more days in the white house after january. >>> president obama greeted voters on his bus tour it and keep the crowds did come to florida he challenged the republican claim that the country is headed downhill. >>> when our opponents say this nation is in decline they're dead wrong. this is america. good of the president's position himself as a champion of the middle-class and that america's basic bargain is at stake. we're the party that says if you work hard it will pay off the bargain that
speaker, of course, vice president joe biden, highlights coming up later. >> thank you. >>> virginia governor is saying that the president's well- spoken words are not enough. republican bob mcdonnell is saying that white house policies are burdening states. >> the biggest thing i hear is from the small business people saying that the tax and policies are oppressive and punitive and it makes it harder to create jobs. we have the lowest number of new start up businesses in america in 30 years based on this president's policy. so, that's the most disturbing actor. >> the governor was in charlotte, north carolina, when i spoke with him yesterday. he was there as part of a group called president barack obama is not working. that put republicans in place to respond to speeches from the democratic national convention. >>> an investigation is underway in a police shooting. it happened last night at county road and foster street in maryland, that is just across the washington, d.c. border. the man who was shot just been arrested. he asuspected of stealing a motorcycle. he was hit in the back

and virginia that seven-point lead in ohio, people asking about the party and sampling, florida and virginia a little less democratic than what the exit polls showed in 2008. ohio a little more. but they also fit with what we know the campaigns are seeing which is the president got a bump. the question now, does it dissipate or not? i think that is of a concern to the romney campaign. >> this just in as they say, the romney camp has announced senator mccain will be holding events in new hampshire where we know he is so popular. >> one of eight or nine swing states. >> at a vfw event. >> under five. it's interesting, you look at these three and that's what's a little bit of concern to the romney campaign is that virginia, ohio, and florida, not looking as good today but there are still races under five points like colorado, new hampshire, wisconsin, nevada, iowa. >> yep. >> iowa less so. >> and show the tough root that mitt romney now has at this -- and this is a snap shot, of course, but your electoral -- >> do it this way, ohio is the one you have republicans biting their finger nails on. e
